Top 5 Green Concealers

In the world of color-correcting concealers, Green is the #1 color. But why green? Well, most people from all walks of life might experience those annoying little red dots called pimples from time to time. In my case, I usually have one per week–so when I want to cover the redness, I pull out my handy green concealer.

Color-correcting concealers are great when flesh-tone concealers aren’t enough to give you a flawless look. As seen in my previous article about orange concealers, green concealers are great to have in your makeup bag when you have to neutralize red-based discoloration; either from acne or rosacea.

If you decide to try a color-correcting concealer, apply it before your foundation. This helps neutralize the redness. After applying your base, apply your flesh-tone concealer. Make sure you blend like crazy! You do not want the green to appear from under your foundation.

Now onto formula! Most concealers come in liquid or cream form but there are color-correcting primers and powders too. I personally like cream concealers. I use a concealer brush and apply how much product I want to apply. If you have larger areas of redness, I find green primers or powders to be better since they cover greater areas.

National Novel Writing Month Day 15:Can I Wear Colored Eyeshadows?

With the hype of the neutral eye being ingrained in the everyday makeup routine, colored eyeshadows are left in the shadows (pun intended). Which is extremely sad since colored eyeshadows can add more depth and personality to your eyes.

I decided to find colored shadows for brown to dark brown eyes. The reason being: more than half of the world’s population has brown eyes and most individual with medium to deeper skin tones have a variation of brown eyes (i.e hazel). That is not to say people of darker skin cannot have blue, green, or gray eyes but because of the rarity I will stick to giving information for brown eyed people.

The best colors, BY FAR, that work well with brown eyes are blues, greens, and purples. Plus these colors look great on medium and dark skin so double win!

HINT: Determine your undertone. Cool to cool; Warm to warm.
